When it comes to grilling fish, many folks tend to stick with the basics -- salmon on a cedar plank. While this has become a true classic, the truth is that there are so many more flavorful options available when it comes to type of fish and grilling style including this recipe for grilled tuna steaks with a bold arugula pesto.

I love, love, LOVE scallops but they can go from super tender to rubbery very quickly if they aren't cooked hot and fast so they are nicely seared on the outside and still opaque in the center. To do this, I like to fry them in a pre-heated pan, finishing them by basting with clarified butter (butter which has had the butterfat removed in order to give it a higher smoke point) then serving with a creamy smoked pea puree and crispy strips of country ham.
Grilling fish can be intimidating for many backyard cooks as it is easy to go from grilling perfection to fish that is completely stuck to the grates and falling apart. While wood planks are a favorite method of ensuring delicate fish remains intact during the cooking process, wrapping it in banana leaves is another sure fire bet as it protects the fish while also imparting a subtle, almost earthy, flavor.
I am a student of cookbooks; reading them as religiously as some folks might read the Bible. And while I am not one to actually make the dishes outlined between their pages, I thrive on taking inspiration from them and incorporating bits and pieces into the types of kicked-up barbecue and grilling recipes I often share here.
One such book that I have enjoyed cover-to-cover is Gastro Grilling: Fired Up Recipes to Grill Great Everyday Meals by Ted Reader (Penguin Canada 2013) as Ted takes pride in taking every recipe in it just a little bit further.

A mild and delicate white fish, Mahi Mahi is one of my favorite fishes to grill as the smoke adds a subtle balance to its flavor. For this recipe sponsored by Omaha Steaks, I created a fresh herb salt blend to season the fish, then finish it off with a tart and tangy charred tomato relish.
If you’re a fan of scallops then you’ll love this recipe from The Grilling Book by Bon Appetit (Andrews McMeel Publishing 2014) which brings a new level of flavor via rosemary skewers. The key to grilling scallops is to sear them really quickly, just a few minutes per side, otherwise they’ll overcook and become chewy. This recipe is perfect as a main course or an appetizer.
From biscuits and gravy to lemon meringue pie, Colby and Megan Garrelts cover many of the country’s most iconic dishes in their new cookbook Made in America: A Modern Collection of Classic Recipes (Andrews McMeel Publishing 2015). Today Colby and Megan are firing up the grill for one of my favorite freshwater fishes – grilled trout.
Leave it to Chef Michael Symon to take grilled salmon to a new level with the addition of a Knob Creek Smoked Maple Bourbon glaze.
We all know that grilled fish is good for you but it doesn’t always taste great. As such, Grillocracy is turning to Debbie Anderson of the blog Pineapples and Palm Trees for a grilled salmon marinade that she so accurately describes as “…a deliciously refined contemporary to original teriyaki sauce.” Simply mix up the marinade, let the fish soak in the fridge overnight, then grill it up for a flavor-packed main course that’s as flavorful as it is good for you!
Can't decide between steak or shrimp for dinner? Why not have them both, courtesy of this grilled surf-and-turf kebab recipe from Zully Hernandez of the flavor packed Foodie Zoolee blog. Note that while the steak and shrimp can be combined on the skewers, Zully prefers to keep them separate as the cooking times vary.
